Abstract : A real time Langmuir probe data reduction program was developed and applied to a mirror geometry electrodynamic magnetoplasma experiment (ELMAX). The total program requires less than one minute to determine the electron temperature, ion density, and plasma and floating potentials at one position in the plasma. (Modified author abstract)
